uncoated cardstock. Even if you think your CS in not coated, it might be. I found that using the cheapest CS out there works best. All inks and images are available from
in the Stamp Oasis section.
After stamping your images (in this case Baroque Background and French Letter) you let the carstock sit for 5 minutes or so letting the ink absorb into the paper. The image is revealed when ironed on the cotton setting. I really like this look because it is more crisp and defined than using bleach and way less messy. The Time Collage was inked with Tim Holtz black soot distress ink and the edges were sponged. The time piece bookplate was antiqued with Stazon Black and a Black Copic marker. I filled the center in with watch pieces from 7gypsies. The ribbon is May Arts and the chain was part of a jewelry embellishment I picked up on clearance with intentions of cutting it apart for collage work. I love this sketch and the colors I used today, I hope you like it as well!
